Wasting everyone’s time

Trump is tired of all this pampering of children, he wants them to go back to school now.

President Donald Trump on Monday urged the nation’s governors to “seriously consider” reopening schools as part of his push to restart the economy, though many states have already recommended against resuming the school year.

“Some of you might start thinking about school openings, because a lot of people are wanting to have school openings. It’s not a big subject, young children have done very well in this disaster that we’ve all gone through,” Trump told the governors on a teleconference call, according to audio of the call obtained by CNN.

Huh? It’s not a big subject? It is if any of them are your kids, I bet.

He continued, “So a lot of people are thinking about the school openings. And I think it’s something, Mike (Pence), they can seriously consider and maybe get going on it.”

Trump, Pence and other task force officials on Monday’s call outlined the administration’s testing blueprint and then spent much of the hour-long call fielding praise and thanks, reopening plan updates, and a few questions from the governors. Trump repeatedly urged them to get in the queue to ask questions by dialing “hashtag two.”

In other words it was largely a waste of time.

The President, who owns a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, asked Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, whether he had made a decision on opening his state “and the Strip, etc., etc., with all your hotels.”

Or rather…all Trump’s hotel.

A Las Vegas re-opening, Trump said, “will be a big thing.”

Yeah? I would say it will be about the smallest thing imaginable. Who cares? It’s not about food or housing or health or safety or education or anything else that matters – it’s just about gambling and “shows.”

Trump lamented media coverage at multiple times during the call, saying his efforts “probably will never be recognized, but maybe it will, you never know.”

If it does it will be a “big thing.”
